Directions

Arriving by Car or Minibus

Sat Nav using M43 6DS will lead you to Buckely Street (via Mellor Street off Ashton New Road) but please note we are on the canal, not the road. (There is limited parking on Highbank Road, if you are coming with a large minibus or multiple cars please make arrangements to drop your group off and then park in another location or use our car park see directions below).

From Manchester City Centre:

To get to our car park from Ashton New Road (A662), turn right into Buckley Street. Drive to the very end of Buckley Street which turns into unmade/ dirt road. At the end you will face a set of black metal gates. Drive through these gates and then drive through another set of black metal gates to your immediate right. We share access with the our neighbour and Canal and River Trust. Please ensure that the first set of gates are closed behind you to prevent other vehicles straying onto the site.

When approaching from Ashton-under-Lyne or the M60:

The M60 Junction 23 (Ashton-under-Lyne turn-off) is 10 minutes away for our centre. From the M60 follow signs for Manchester on the A635 Manchester Road (you will pass the Snipe Retail Park on your left) and then at traffic lights the road splits into 4 lanes - get in the 3rd lane and follow signs for Droylsden A662. Continue on this road (A662 Droylsden Road) until Buckley Street (just after Tesco which is to your right). Turn left into Buckley Street.

Drive to the very end of Buckley Street which turns into unmade/ dirt road. At the end you will face a set of black metal gates.
